Our Young Writers Lab began at the 2014 Bath Literature Festival and now meets each month. The group of 12-18 year olds work with writer Alice Maddicott to develop their writing skills and create work for exhibition, performance and publication. The young writers value the opportunity to explore all that writing can be, to push the boundaries of the form whilst developing their craft.

The group have created installations and read their work at our festivals and in 2016 they published a collaborative novel: And then I realise that I am lost.

For 2019 the group will be presenting their poems and stories in shop windows throughout The Bath Festival in May.
